Flowers and a lane

Two more views taken during our hike yesterday near the village of Ter Apel, in Westerwolde. These lovely little flowers attract bees and can be found everywhere now, especially on roadsides. I think it's called knapweed, or 'knoopkruid' in Dutch.
Update: I was kindly informed by several of you that this is not knapweed but clover. Many thanks for correcting me! I appreciate that :))

I love the sight of these old and grand looking lanes. It´s the kind of lane that would lead to a castle, or a manor maybe, and you wouldn´t be surprised to see a horse and carriage appear. This photo was taken near the Ter Apel Monastery, and it must be one of the older access roads.

Linking today to All Seasons.

  1. Zo'n bomenlaan is altijd erg mooi om te zien, vooral als er geen auto's mogen rijden.

  7. I love these too and would likely follow them to see where they lead. But not at night. At night they would be very dark and spooky!

  13. Beautiful, both captures! I have some similar looking weeds in my yard, but they're blue-purplish. Love the pink kind! Yes, stately trees. Many thanks for showing this at All Seasons! Hope you'll show us at some time the monastery too:)

  14. Those are the flowers of clover (called Klee in German). Not weeds. :D
    I love those stately trees. This looks like a very peaceful and relaxing place.
